"It's been several weeks since I rode my bike and I was okay with that...until I my BGDB jersey came in the mail yesterday. All of a sudden I had an urge to ride!

Happy New Year BGDB members! I've been inspired since joining this group in the Fall 2013 - I'd just started biking again after a long hiatus. I'm really proud of myself having done my first little 2-day mini tour over New Years. I've been wanting to get back into touring and decided that I just needed to do what I could with the resources I currently have (you really don't need much). Here's a photo of me heading out. I've also attached a video link of my little trip.

In the past five years, there has been only one woman to take home the Elite Woman's title from the ABA/USA BMX Grand Nationals: Dominique Daniels. Prior to her five titles, Daniels also took home two amateur titles, giving her seven straight years of taking a title home on Grands weekend.
The exclamations were unbelievable! ”This is the best day of my life”, “I thought this was going to be boring, but this is amazing”, and “I love this!”
They left the camp with a sense of belonging, accomplishment, pride, and hunger for more. I never thought this was possible from those timid faces.

I def love to ride, its a passion of mine. I don't ride a bike to add days to my life. I ride a bike to add life to my days - unknown Get out and Bicycle Lafayette #bikelala

At the Midnight Rumble Bike Ride
This picture is from Pedal Pittsburgh. I rode the 25 mile route and had a blast. Although I was "by myself" (hubby took on the century route and I didn't know anyone on the ride), I was never alone no matter how fast or slow I biked. There were people of all ages and sizes, beginners and experts. Will you join us next year?
Here is a pic of me riding in a tutu (60+ miles) during Climate Ride.

"I biked in Cleveland! My first major city! I take my bike on all my trips just in case I get a chance I ride and I did! It wasn't easy, the wind from Lake Erie was no joke!"
Congrats to Bailey who took the "route with a view" in the form of the 62 mile PJ Dick Trumbull and Lindy Paving Metric Century. Yes that's 100km! And she captured this awesome shot from the top of Mt. Washington. Thanks for sharing.
"I’ve loved bicycling ever since my childhood. My favorite though is solo bicycle touring. It feels like true freedom to me to be able to load my bike with everything that I need for a day, weekend or week, and push off under my own steam to explore the world. Even though I ride regularly these days, it has been years since I have toured. Now entering my 50th decade, I’m ready to ‘get on the ball’ and start again!"
Carlene has begun riding as a way to help with mobility and fitness; post knee surgery. She loves the benefits and finds it a great way to spend time with her grandchildren.
I LOVE this page! I would like to share a photo of my daughter from the recent USA Cycling Mountain Bike Cross Country National Championships, where she placed 4th.She is also a former national champion in cyclocross. I am hopeful that it can inspire someone to keep turning those pedals!

"This is my bike. There are many like it, but this one is mine."
My first legit bike since I was a kid. I plan to give her some company real soon. Maybe an Elektra Townie or a cool road bike. I often stop to take pictures when I ride. That's my zen.
